Many trends have come and gone in the history of landscape gardening, yet natural stone remains a perennial part of the horticultural landscape.
The most obvious use for natural stone in the garden is in the form of paving stones, either for a patio or a garden path. Most, but not all, stone is well suited to outdoor use especially if a surface texture is applied to increase the slip resistance in wet conditions. To make a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living the same stone can be used for both the interior and exterior with a different surface finish applied if necessary.
The use of natural stone outside does not need to be limited to the patio however; by cladding planters, wall copings and steps the stone can be continued throughout the theme of the hard landscaping. Other details such as feature walls, sculptures and water features in a matching or contrasting stone which add another dimension of interest to a landscape.
